Spring 2002 Computational Acoustics Lecture 12 Links
Some links for Lecture 12:
HDF, the Hierarchical Data Format.
A few of the programs that read the HDF format:
Transform, Plot, and Noesys programs,
originally made by Fortner Research, now distributed by
Transform is essentially a commercial
version of the old freeware program from
AVS, the Application Visualization System
Tecplot, a product of Amtec Engineering is available on
CAC UNIX computers and thales.
At least two excellent Tecplot tutorials are available,
The University of Minnesota
and another from the
MATLAB, using the "imread" function to read
raster images in all versions. Here are some
Here is an example HDF image file:
also read other types of HDF data
sets in versions 5.2 and later.
Mathematica Version 4 can read and write HDF scientific data
directly using the Import[ ] and Export[ ] commands.
Here is an
example notebook to try writing
and reading an HDF file.
Mathematica Version 3 can read HDF scientific data
sets using MathHDF available through
Open DX, an open version of IBM Visualization Explorer.
This software requires an X-windows emulation program like Exceed.
